Dear husband had the idea of putting this in a steeper and infusing some mead with it, and it is phenomenal. Just silly good. I encourage anyone who likes a nice glass of mead to get an unflavored one and put some in there. It is one of the best things I’ve ever drank.

Pineapple flavoured mead? That sounds fabulous!

I’m using Bea’s Mead because its cheap and easy to drink honestly, but its even better with that pineapple. Yum yum yum.

This tea was something I wanted to try the instant I heard it existed. The smell out of the bag is brilliant, but I’m getting no cherry. Once brewed the color is a dark brown. Flavorwise I’m really not getting the cakey-ness others have mentioned. I get the pinapple and a bit of the cherry though. Both of which I’m nothing but happy about. All and all I’m happy I got this because its lovely! I might need to go heavier on the leaves to get more of that cakey flavor, but goodness am I happy either way.

Apple and I are not the best of friends for eating. However for drinking, we’re close as can be. This is really lovely, though I think I was a bit stingy on the leaf for the size pot I made to share with my husband. Its delicious to drink though regardless. I’m actually a little bummed I only got a sample of this, but honestly, I’ve got apple tea. I don’t need more. I just wanted to check and see how Adagio did with it. I’d definitly buy this again.

One of my favorite teas, especially since I got it from Iheartteas on facebook who had an amazing sale going on in spring. I used some vanilla almond milk to give it some creamyness and it only made it better.

What a wonderful start to a lovely Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to anyone else in the states with me!

A nice and creamy. The flavor is so beautifully mellow and its a great tea to wake up with. I recommmend this to anyone who like chocolate as well as a suitable craving filler.

Let me say first off, that this is my first foray into Matcha. As I didn’t have the proper supplies, someone suggested I use my french press to get a froth, so thats what I did.

This…this is heaven in a cup. I think I used far too little Matcha powder after reading things up online, the ‘how to’s’ I read online about how to make it with the press had said use a teaspoon. I’m assuming their stuff was different because using that much here I got mildly flavored milk, but it was still delicious. It strikes me as a good alternative for a day when I’m craving hot chocolate but wanting something with a little more oomph.

This was sent to me from TeaSipper, and I’m really thankful for the ability to try it without paying an exorbanant amount for something I may not end up liking.

Super pleased with this, going to try more here in a moment with more powder because I really think the flavor being upped some wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.

I’m glad you like it! This is matchaccino though, different from a matcha serving. My bag comes with a scoop that IS bigger than a teaspoon.. I don’t know how much exactly.. it could be a tablespoon.

JennyFur

Thank you for that. I’ll give it a try with a teaspoon this next time.

Mixed this 75/25 with the Adagio Cream tea because alone its flavor is a little overwhelming. This was one of the first teas I ever bought and boy am I glad I gave myself time to retry it before giving up on it. Now that I’ve had more varieties of tea I think I can truly say that I like this. The pumpkin is lovely and very light when the cream is completely mellowing things out.

The more Oolong I drink the more I realize I love the heck out of it. The first time I made this I made a whole pot and boy was I glad. Easy to drink and smooth on the palate, I could drink this pretty much daily.

Glad you like it! :D

drank Buttered Rum by Green Hill Tea

I feel I’ve done something wrong brewing this. It came out quite bitter in an unplesant way. I see it says its astringent in the description but I’m not sure if thats what I’m getting or if I just oversteeped. I don’t hate it with some milk and a touch of Stevia. But I’m glad I got it in a swap instead of paying for it. Hopefully when I brew the rest I find a way to make it easier to drink.
